Maxinkuckee Village

The Village of Maxinkuckee

A committee of the AHS, co-chaired by Patricia Cole and Past President James Peterson, is conducting initial studies for the preservation of Maxinkuckee Village. Though it was never formally platted or incorporated, the village had a church, a township school, a post office, a historic hotel, stores and even a lodge (the International Order of Odd Fellows). It was, so far as we know, the only place in Marshall County where European settlement followed directly on the site of a Potawatomi village–in this case, that of Chief Nas-wau-kee (pictured above, in a portrait by George Winter).

Video of a presentation by Kurt West Garner, given at the Culver Depot on February 16, 2019, is available on the AHS YouTube Channel.

Here is the text of Mr. Garner’s report:
